Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

im trying to setup my wifi card i got from a compex router/Access Point.
I pulled it out of the router and inserted it into my ubuntu laptop and ran dmesg.

here above is the results
ive been googling quite a bit online to compile drivers to use monitor mode.
i also tried to manuelly set the iwconfig eth2 mode monitor
but no luck and from what i understand is that its a problem with the orinio drivers which interface with this card.
I do know this card is capable of monitor mode because thats how the compex router works it goes into monitor mode with this card.
im still lost as to whether i need to downgrade my firmware ? which is what verison?
do i compile orinoco drivers ? I did try to compile but when i apply the patch for monitor mode it errors on compiling.
